Rand Paul-TSA standoff: a reason to dismantle TSA?

U.S. Senator Rand Paul's current standoff with the TSA at a Nashville airport could potentially represent a perfect reason to dismantle the TSA, at least in the eyes of Americans who are concerned over the trampling on Constitutional rights by the government.
It so happens that supporters of Senator Paul's father, Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul, are the very ones who have been calling for the dismantling of the agency in light of its year-long attack on the rights and liberties of U.S. citizens who travel through the nation's airports.
The Senator's problems began when he was told at the airport by TSA officials that there was a problem with his scan as performed by the ever-present screening machines, and that he would need a pat-down.
